Arch 468 presents a Theatre in the Mill commission
The Class Project
Written & performed by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord
This is a show about belonging. About tribes and families. About the place you belong because you were born there; the places that are in your blood but also the places you adopt; that you pretend are your home and the places you change yourself to try and belong in.
It’s about class mobility. And regional identity. And being a Thatcher’s child. It’s about education and 'making good’ for yourself. And maybe about how that can leave you exiled from the place you started. With nowhere to quite belong.
It’s about always being an imposter and trying to remember how to speak in your own voice.
The Class Project is a Theatre in the Mill commission, produced by Arch 468, funded by Arts Council England and supported by ARC Stockton, Derby Theatre, The Bike Shed and the Old Vic and by China Plate, mac birmingham, Warwick Arts Centre and In Good Company through the First Bite Festival.
